Default Drivers seat, back cover.

Hi all

Had to swap out the bolster motor on my driver seat. All fixed and back in. However I've not got the seat back on correctly as the back cover is not sitting flush with the leather cover. There are circles on each side of the leather and white plastic clips glued on the inside of the seat back cover. Not sure how the the two work together to get tight fit.

you have to start by pushing it up from the bottom so the clips slide in then put the 2 pins under the back hope this helps you

What pee wee said. Locate at the top, press fit the two sides and then use the two screws at the base. The side fittings should clip in with a satisfying thump on the back of the seat cover.
